The Ride: Another VBC classic attracting may riders!
John was a randonneur, world cycle tourer, and a long-time member of the club. Each year he led a ride with a distance of about the same number of kilometers as his age (that would be 95 this year) on or near his birthday. The weather is ALWAYS awful, but no one cares; the ride just magically shortens up if things get ugly. The group might end-up at the Flying Beaver pub, by the float plane terminal, to host a pint or two to a departed friend.
The Route: The exact route (meeting location changed from the one shown – see below) and pace will greatly depend on the climatic conditions and the mood of the moment, but if the weather man got it right we will make a run for Iona Island via Heather bike route and River Road, return on the Arbutus Greenway.
